Floating Bed and Breakfast Anyone?

Traverse Tall Ship Company, 13258 S.W. Bay Shore Drive, Traverse City, MI 49684

Anyone can go on a two hour evening sail, but the real adventure begins when the crew leaves the ship and you are left to spend the night ALL ALONE. 

Are you up for the challenge? 

It's your chance for adventure during the National Cherry Festival. Enjoy a relaxing sunset sail aboard the Sailing Yacht Scout. Upon returning to the dock, the crew will depart, leaving you to enjoy Scout in complete privacy. Grab a blanket and a drink and get cozy on deck to watch the fireworks display, right from the marina. What a view and experience! In the morning the captain will deliver a full breakfast for you to enjoy.  Seriously, how cool is that?

Traverse Tall Ship Company also has specialty cruises, fireworks cruises, evening cruises if you are seeking a "taste" of sailing!

Outstanding Biking

Little Traverse Wheelway-23.7 Miles, Asphalt. Trail activities: Bike, Inline Skating, Fishing, Wheelchair Accessible, Walking, Cross Country Skiing

The Little Traverse Wheelway is north of Traverse City but needs to be mentioned.

Trail end points: Waller Rd. and US 31 (Charlevoix) and Kosequat Park at Park Ln. and E. Lake Road (Harbor Springs).

This is our favorite trail because it's paved, boasts fantastic views and allows for lots of photo worthy stops.  You will enjoy views of Lake Michigan and its shoreline. The paved trail rolls for 24 miles from Charlevoix to Petoskey to Harbor Springs as it follows the curve of Little Traverse Bay.
